Description

"English, Learning & the 21st Century"

The Literacy Revolution

In this presentation we will explore some of the ways in which globalization and rapidly-developing technology are influencing the use of English, ELT course content and teaching methods with new topics such as visual, digital, and cultural literacies as well as the development of critical thinking skills. Participants will be encouraged to share experiences so we can all gain insights into new ways for new needs in ELT.

The 4C’s in Language Teaching & Learning

Today’s students and teachers of English should move beyond the basics and embrace the 4C’s — “super skills” for the 21st century, including sharing thoughts, questions, ideas, and solutions; working together to reach a goal — putting talent, expertise, and smarts to work; looking at problems in a new way, linking learning across subjects & disciplines; and trying new approaches to get things done. This presentation will raise awareness on the importance of those “super skills” and will actively demonstrate how to incorporate them in in every teaching and learning practice.
